The space Within the accommodation the original roof trusses can be seen, these are constructed from Canadian Pine, the large timber beams are slow grown and have growth rings of 250 yrs. Look for the carpenters joint marks where the timbers intersect, these would enable the assembly of the timbers in situ during construction. The Tie bars that run from the outer wall through the kitchen and bathroom areas are an echo from the historic use of the building. Grain would be stored in the building upper floor away from any damp, however as the loading of grain increased this would have applied outward pressure to the walls causing them to spread – therefore the tie bars were inserted to prevent damage to the structure. The Granary has been beautifully furnished and decorated to compliment the original features, using high quality Oak timbers for internal woodwork and artisan Blacksmith fixtures, Private parking and gardens with fruit trees and views across open land are provided for visitors comfort and enjoyment, (the sunsets can be spectacular) also visitors can use the hot tub set in a pine cabin. Also a secure bike storage and clothing/boot drying locker within the storage area below the accommodation.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Stunning cottage
This cottage is ideal in so many respects. The accomodation is superb and beautifully decorated, comfortable and perfect for a couple. It is within close proximity to many lovely market towns, Thirsk being the nearest being only a few minutes drive away. This is our second visit and we have already booked a third because there is so much to discover in this beautiful area. Private space to park in and a pretty garden to sit in and take in the wonderful views. The owners are helpful and friendly and have provided useful leaflets and information within the cottage.

Excellent accommodation in good location
I stayed here for a number of months on business. The cottage is very well appointed and built to a very high standard. It is clean, very warm in the colder months and has everything you need in a self catered cottage. Also a big bonus for me, given my length of stay, was a very comfortable bed which is not always easy to find. It is perfect for a couple’s getaway being close to most of the regions major attractions. The hosts Steve and Hilary were very welcoming and the eggs and cake a great touch.
